TTTT: HERALD Page 5 HELPLESS CRIPPLE FROM RHEUMATISM Five Boies 01 "Ftuit-a-tives" Cured Her 4 HOMK FLACK, TORONTO, DEC, rsth, 1909, "I was a terrible sufferer from Rheumatism for nearly a year, end my right was swollen and the paiu was fearful. AH down the right side, the pain was dreadful, and I could hardly move for the agony. I was treated by two physiciaus but their uiediciue did me no good, and I tried numerous other remedies but received, no benefit. I was simply a helpless cripple aud suffered from Rheumatism all during last -Winter. advertised in "The decided to try this remedy. After I had taken one box, I was much belter and the patn less, and I continued the treatment with good hopes. When 1 had takeu three boxes, J was so well that I could use uiy arm ajjaiu and the pain was practically pone. After I had taken five bbijes, 1 was entirely well now I am as I ever was. The cure of my case by "Fruit-a-tives" iudeed splendid because all the doctors failed to even relieve me of my sufferings. "For the sake of.others who may suffer from this terrible disease, Rheuma- tism, I give you permission to publish this statement." MRS. XTZZIE. BAXTER, "Friut-a-tives" is the only remedy that actually cures-Rheumatism, and Sciatica because the only medicine that actually prevents Uric Acid being formed in any quantity in the body. If there is uo excess of uric acid in the blood, there cau be no Rheumatism. "'Fruit-a-tives" keeps the stomach liver bowels regu'ar kidney strong and the skin healthy. These are the organs that rid the body of all waste. When "Fruit-a-tives" so regulates the system that all waste is eliminated, then there can be no waste or "urea" to be changed into uric acid. Thus, there can be uo uric acid in the blood, to inflame nerves and cause the pain which we know by the names of Rheumatism, Sciatica, Lumbago, Neuralgia, "Fniit-a-tives" will cure every trace of Rheumatism, Pain In The Back, Swollen Hands and and other troubles due to the blood being poisoned by uric acid.
